Welcome to our Business Centre. If you just arrived in Singapore – just disembarked – a little orientation manual could be very useful.

These meetings are led by fellow industry professionals, and the meetings cover an extensive range of sectors and functions (18 in total). You will surely find a meeting of interest to you.
